Attorney Phaedra Parks attends Angela Stanton's deposition

According to Reality TV Scandals blog, reality TV personality and local attorney Phaedra Parks finally sat for her deposition.

If you recall, Parks filed a lawsuit against author Angela Stanton for publishing a book detailing alleging criminal activity on the part of Parks and her known associates. Vibe magazine, which published Stanton’s book, ultimately settled with Parks for an amount that was reported to be $2,500.

Parks sat for Stanton’s deposition in February. Since then, Parks ducked and dodged Stanton’s lawyer’s requests to sit for her own deposition in the presence of Stanton.
